I've written songs for about 25 years now. But only about 18 months ago, I had the chance of recording them. That is something I'm so greatful for. My producer plays most of the instruments - but I play the sax. When I compose I use the guitar. But I've played the drums and the piano also. Right now I just love playing the altosax.
Band/artist history
I used to play with a girlfriend for some wonderful years when we were young. We made a lot of songs, of which some still have the quality to be recorded. Then I formed a band of three people - my friend on guitar, a male keyboardplayer and myself on the drums. That worked great for a few years. But the keyboard player got ill. It was fun but we never got around to playing live. As I started to get singing lessons with various teachers I really knew that the instument I had to use was my voice. So most of the instruments on my songs are played by my producer Henrik Fevre. He also sings backing vocals. I can recommend you to listen to my producer Henrik Fevre how also has a SoundClick page.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I've only had at few chances of playing/singing live. But I loved every moment.
Your musical influences
They are many. I just love the way Frank Sinatra phrases. And I've learned so much from the great Sammy Davis Jr. Both male singers, I know. I also have a real inspiration in Shirley Bassey. I write pop songs so it's not fair to compare my songs and the way I sing to any of them. But nevertheless they inspire me.
